Meet The Team


Megan (she, her)

Hi there! I'm Megan. I come from the mighty PNW where I studied Psychology at the University of Washington. After skiing cascade concrete my whole life I set out on a journey to find that perfect Rocky Mountain champagne powder. Three years later and this valley has turned into my home and favorite place in the world. You can find me hanging out with my rocks and tarot cards or talking to the trees and mountains. I also have a passion for teaching tiny humans about the beautiful world we live in via recreation and mindfulness. 


Nadine (she, her)

Hello, sunshine! I’m Nadine! I grew up in Versailles, Kentucky and decided to move out here when I turned 18! I have always loved traveling and exploring new places so I knew this was the place for me! I love agriculture, anything that has to do with being outside, floral design, cooking, and stained glass work. You can usually find me reading a book or (if it's summer) gardening! So excited to be here in Gunni! :)


Kelly (she, her)

I’m Kelly! I come all the way from San Antonio, Texas. I've never met a dog or a taco I didn't like! My hobbies include exploring as a foodie, jamming out to live music and creating cocktails over great conversation. Traveling is my biggest passion and I've been blessed to be able to explore Colorado and this amazing valley.  Happy to be in Gunnison for the summer season and beyond ☼
